I shall suggest…that some people may, occasionally, see in nature what we see

I shall suggest…that some people may, occasionally, see in nature what we see in art, and feel for her an aesthetic emotion; but I am satisfied that, as a rule, most people feel a very different kind of emotion for birds and flowers and the wings of butterflies from that which they feel for pictures, pots, temples and statues. Why these beautiful things do not move us as works of art move us in another, and not an aesthetic , question.”

In the course of viewing landscape works of art, weather paintings or photography, have you felt some of the same kind of emotions? If not, focus on the emotions you do feel when viewing nature.
